In 2019, 18 million tons of sugarbeet were obtained from 310,100 ha. area. This amount corresponds to 6.5 % of the world prooduction. Sugar beet yield in Turkey is 58.3 tonnes/hectare. Although this amount is behind the EU countries, it is around the World average . Since the early years of the Republic, the sugar industry has been a sector that pioneered Turkish agriculture and made significant contributions to its development. The Sugar Authority, which was established by Law No. 4634, was closed in 2017 and its powers were transferred to the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. The authority to determine quotas under the law was given to the Council of Ministers in 2018. TÜRKŞEKER was included in the scope of privatization in 2008, within this framework, the tender process was initiated for the privatization of 14 sugar factories in 2018. Turkey Sugar Factories Inc. which produces sugar from beet has 30 % share in this sector and continues its activities with 15 Sugar Factories . There is a reform process in the European Union since 2006. The quota system was terminated in 2017. Following these reforms is vital for the sector and for Turkish agriculture and industry.
